I heard about this book on NPR on my way home today. Good timing -- I needed a good laugh. I might have to put this one on my Christmas list. The Brits have a special way with language, and polite candor. These personals are very different from the kind you'd read in the states.
"They call me Naughty Lola. Run of the mill beardy physicist - Male, 46."
"Most vegetarians complain about missing the taste of bacon. Not me, I complain about my liver disease. And rural postal services. Man, 40."
"Love is strange -- wait 'til you see my feet. F, 34, wide-fitting Scholl's."
